Dublin, Ireland

Established in 2004, our lab in Dublin is the research hub of the Nokia partnership with the Centre for Telecommunications Value Chain Research.

The collaboration between Bell Labs and 8 universities is the basis for the Centre for Science, Engineering & Technology (CSET), which provides opportunities for university scientists to gain experience in industrial research. 


Dublin based scientists at Bell Labs were instrumental in the development of the award-winning lightRadio® cube. Scientists here focus on algorithms, RF hardware, and system designs for the next-generation of small cells. Data analytics, network systems and cloud computing are also part of the research program in Dublin.


Bell Labs Ireland has one of only a few anechoic chambers in the country.  We use the chamber for live, over-the-air testing of advanced antenna designs.  This location also features a Bell Labs Technology Showcase to display replicas of the first transistor, Telstar satellite, loop antennae, lightRadio® and other innovations that have had a major impact on our industry.
